Okay, I got one:
I make the sky blue.
I'm why chocolate tastes good.
I'm why swords dull.
I provide you with inspiration.
I make birds fly south in the winter.
I'm why water doesn't flow uphill.
I keep your money safe.
Can you guys solve this incredibly hard riddle? Bwahahaha, this riddle shall be impossible to solve!
In order to survive in this world, I have put on armors of a false self. As utterly foolish as it may sound, the reality is that I am fearful of having the real me be rejected by those around me so I don this facade of a fake persona. Although wearing this fabricated armor, I am actually exposing the weak nature of my defense. I feel like a matryoshka doll, being just a small doll trapped within several larger fake shells. The problem with hiding behind this fake identity, is that I have worn it so long, there is nothing beneath. It has been too long since I have been myself. I cannot recall who I truly am.
What are you waiting for? Hug me so tightly that these matryoshka shells shatter. Smash them, tear them, and rip them off for me, all these armors that I'm wearing. Break them all and let me be myself.

Isn't this one "Nothing"? Someone told me one like this a long time ago


My favorite riddle is

I turn polar bears white
And I will make you cry
I make guys have to pee
And girls comb their hair
I make celebrities look stupid
And normal people look like celebrities
I turn pancakes brown
And make your champagne bubble
If you squeeze me, I'll pop
If you look at me, you'll pop
Can you answer this riddle?

Hmm... That works for some parts of both riddles, but not all.

For example, why swords dull and water flows uphill in the first one, and in the second one the lines about squeezing and popping don't seem to be explained by darkness.

Sorry if I'm just not getting it. :/

If anyone wants to be entertained check this riddle out on yahoo answers...I got to reply number 200 or so then decided to quit looking.

The answer to manic's has to be something like the earths rotation...
